Step 1: ​How Does It Work?

The DHT11 is a basic, ultra low-cost digital temperature and humidity sensor. It uses a capacitive humidity sensor and a thermistor to measure the surrounding air, and spits out a digital signal on the data pin (no analog input pins needed). Its fairly simple to use, but requires careful timing to grab data. The only real downside of this sensor is you can only get new data from it once every 2 seconds, so when using our library, sensor readings can be up to 2 seconds old.

So...I have everything hooked up. The code verified and downloaded correctly.

I cannot read anything over the comport. Its there..which means my code is uploaded correctly. When I open the comport I see nothing. Please advise.

Sorry it took me so long to respond. Work has been tough with the Verizon strike. I will try this now and respond via email.

Thank you very much for your help.
